If you've never heard of the CC Riders, you're in the majority, but you're also missing one of the greatest Rock & Roll horn bands ever. The band always had 6 to 11 horns, and spawned some of the most influential people in modern popular music, like:
Alan Sylvestri, Guitar with the CC Riders, now one of the top 3 Hollywood movie writers (ForrestGump, The Abyss, etc.)
Jaco Pastorius (my room-mate)
Lee Thornberg, trumpet with the Tonight Show starring Jay Leno. He's the one who removes Wayne's cape in the video linked below.
Dick Oatts, Top clinician, recording artist
To go on, it gets nuts. Anyway, I got to play with old friends, and break out my rare 1921 slide saxophone. For a video of the band live on TV (Maybe Merv Griffin) in 1976, about a year after I left, fasten your seatbelt and check out:
